5 Fall 2017 Trends

Summer is out. Fall is in. Here are five autumnal trends for 2017.


Warm blacks are the new thing, and nothing captures the drama of the seasons changing quite like them. So if you’re looking to make a bold statement this September, get in touch with your dark side.

If black is a little too bold, dark greens and browns will capture a similar vibe, minus the melodrama.


Everyone needs a little getaway now and then. Why not make your destination just down the hall? All the chaos of the modern world coupled with cooler weather creeping in can drive anyone to the edge. Fight back by creating a space in your home to rejuvenate and recharge.

Our recommendation to really get away: ditch digital. No work emails, no news updates, no screens at all.


The ceiling is about to have its biggest renaissance since, well, the Renaissance (here’s looking at you, Sistine Chapel). Homeowners have come to realize that ceilings are often a whole lot of unused design space.

Bright colors, intricate patterns, coarse textures, and interesting materials are all showing up on the forgotten fifth wall. When it comes to beautiful ceilings, things are looking up.


Summer might be gone, but the mercury dropping has never stopped a Wisconsinite from spending time outside. So Make sure you don’t just dress appropriately, and but decorate appropriately, too. Extend patio season well into the fall with thick blankets, fire pits, and outdoor space heaters. Rough textures like woolen blankets and woven baskets will look perfect on a crisp day. And if you need color inspiration, just look at the trees.


After spending sweaty summer siestas getting tossed off and kicked onto the floor, it’s bedding’s time in the spotlight. Let’s get cozy and creative this season by mixing and matching patterns, colors, and textures to make your bed more than just a place to sleep.

Changing your bedding is just the beginning. Decorative blankets and pillows piled high can create a look to match the thermometer. And think about upholstering your headboard to complete the style.
